United Regional Physician Group has been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), distinguishing URPG from many other outpatient facilities through its adherence to rigorous standards of care and safety.
Status as an accredited organization means URPG has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. The intent of accreditation is for organizations to adopt policies and procedures that fuel ongoing quality improvement and self-evaluation every day.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
